Thanks Chipp for the reply, but now I'm confused. When on-rev says I can
have Unlimited Subdomains and Unlimited Add On Domains I understood
(probably wrongly) that the Add On refers to those registered elsewhere,
that I can move to on-rev at no charge from on-rev. What then is the
Unlimited Subdomain feature, how do I go about creating the multiple
Subdomains, and particularly what would they look like: kay1.on-rev,
kay2.on-rev, OR something.on-rev, completely.on-rev, different.on-rev??

Trying to get my head around what the pros and cons of Subdomains vs Add On
Domains and how to maximise the usefullness of the Subdomains as it appears
(again I may have this wrong) to be free whilst every Add On will requie the
cost of registration.

Clear as mud ;-|
